Uh, the attachments is probably true.

However, Hylafax most certainly can merge faxes in one call.  If you specify
more than one file to be sent, it will be, all in one call. I KNOW this
works properly because my petition fax service (at the below web site) 
uses it programmatically if there are multiple signatures on a given 
petition when the transmission is scheduled.

Nor is this new - I used to use this feature when I ran an ISP to queue
faxed documents to people from our customer service desk.

What are you trying to print to one document that word fails to permit?  
Can you be specific?

I'd like to look into that - I suspect you're wrong but I might be instead
